Try this link, I just tested this as a macro and works. You can save the
macro as a button to execute. The only downside is, when you execute,
you will get an outlook prompt, that will say " a program is trying to
send email automatically..." I think this only occurs on Outlook 2003,
but not sure. You can use a utility called click yes that will bypass
this. Or find\write another macro that does not use mapi.

Subject: [exchangelist] Automating the 'Email' process in a Word

I have searched and racked my brain over the following:

I have created several forms in MS Word and would like to create a
'button' in the document that automatically sends the Word document as
an attachment to our helpdesk e-mail address.  (so end users can submit
various types of requests)

I have tried adding fields - no luck

I have tried adding macros - no luck

This should be a simple process, but it is consuming way too much of my

No, I do not want to use public folders with published forms.  

I am posting these Word Doc Forms on sharepoint, and just want to add a
button that will automatically send as an attachment to the correct
e-mail address.

Anyone got any links to resources on this?  And yes I have googled it,
but nothing really works.

Thanks for reading this 'off topic' request.
